CISCOSOHO91-K9

I need to know if NAT can be disabled. I need to be able to route a /27 over whichever router I go with.

Details:
I have a T1 through network telephone. They can not give me access to their router. I ordered a block of ip addresses and as soon as I can find a broadband router that does everything I need, I can use their router as the modem and finally have full control over my network. I was looking at the CISCOSOHO91-K9 but I am unsure as to whether or not it will do what I need. Will it let me disable NAT? Can I manage the ethernet interfaces as I would a 2600 model?

NAT can be disabled on any Cisco router., in fact its not enabled by default.  I can give you specific instructions on how to check this if you want.

Do you know if I will be able to manage the ethernet interfaces on this router the same as I would on say a 2600 model? I have configured and managed several cisco routers (am still a newb though) but none that had a 4port switch integrated. I am not sure what to expect.

Will I be able to assign ip's to these interfaces and route traffic over an individual port? Crossed over to another switch?

I hope that makes sense.

If this router will not do what I need it too. Can you recommend one that will? I want to go Cisco and everything is over ethernet/RJ45. The router now will become the modem and will terminate into the new router via ethernet/RJ45.

Network=4 Domains and I want to put each behind its own router(probably a linksys), each running on an internal subnet.
Total # of computers=40 so it is a midsize network.  

I will not waste your time and explain every aspect or what I have planned. Let me know if there is anything else you need to know. I could take a few minutes and create a flow chart if that'd help.

You can treat the 4 port swithc as one interface.  I have heard that you can use VLANs to manage each individual port, but I am not sure if you can do thet with your particualr model of router.  Each VLAN woudl have its own IP address and you would assign the VLANs to the individual ports.  I beleve that most of the 4 port switches on Cisco routers can support this.

The tutorial explains that the router can support up to 5 users. Do you think it is only describing the number of physical connections to it?

Can it do what I need it to in your opinion?

I beleive you can.  Look at this post for info on how to setup the VLANs.

If Cisco is saying that is support up to five user I'm sure it can actually have more on the network, but the router may not be able to support the traffic.  At least that is what I am assuming.

Thank you for your responses thus far.

Do you or anyone else know an exact model of a cisco router that will do what I need it too?

All I really need is 1 ethernet interface that can be used as my WAN int and then another ethernet interface that can route the /27. Will any cisco router with 2 ethernet interfaces suffice?

I have a Cisco switch catalyst 2900 that I can terminate the router into and then configure for vlans.

I would use a Cisco 831, but I have never used one of these with 40 users.  I have used a 831 in a situation that your described but with only about 20 users.  However, I don't see you having any problems.

I haven't been able to find any concrete information. For your time, I'll award you the points.

Thank you for your responses. You were more help then anyone else I have spoken with.
